had one job, to convince the american people he cou job. obama's job was to convince romney he couldn't. i think that he failed at that. i think rom knew yesterday where the obama camp would go, to paint him as a warmonger. he knew where they would throw the ball. he looked like a dove. he played that very, very well. i thought he was very appealing to women. and to independents. he's very interesting, romney. last night, barack obama was trying to reach to his base. if you're 14 days out from an election and still worried about your base, you have very big problems. >> eric: bob, do you see it same way? >> i see it the way every poll showed it, that obama won. when charles krauthammer says strategic, i don't know what is strategic about what romney said in that debate. the guy was outclassed when it came to substance. he said we should not announce date for withdrawal from afghanistan and he did. he stuck to 2014 like the president of the united states had. when you were all making a big deal out of libya, i don't know how many words romney spent on libya -- >> greg: three. >> bob: t
! but one thing for sure on that stage last night we only saw one commander in chief. yes, obama wins round three of the presidential debate hands down. we'll get into it every which way here for the next three hours but first today's latest, the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. if you are asking yourself who won last night's presidential debate you probably weren't watching. president obama came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obam
that works. you think if obama had a foreign policy, they would feel differently. foreign policy is the only thing that matters. even dana perino's barbie house has gun tur rants. when mitt ran the olympics did he declare war on jamaican bobsleders? if it's warmongering to protect the embassy personnel, mitt would say i'm for warmongering. it's awesome. to obama not blaming america is warmongering and blaming that stupid video. either it's a mess or a coverup. what can obama point to as foreign policy success? the things that it hasn't gotten worse? the president with no record to run on knows the negative can't prove it. what is obama afraid to say publicly many election he will say to putin after? obama has been hiding the foreign policy agenda until after the election. anything a middle age man hides from the world this carefully, it can't be good. all right. eric bolling is out in boca raton. how is boca raton? i always wanted to visit mexico. nice >> eric: it's beautiful. in florida, not mexico. a beautiful day. 85 and sunny. we got here, i got here around 11:00 this morning. people fee
obama. a bigger spread than the real clear politic average of recent national polls that has romney up less than one point. president obama prepped for this in camp david before heading to florida. and romney stayed in florida, near the boca raton site. vice president biden campaigned in the crucial swing state of ohio, making two stops. starting in kansas. the latest two polls ther pollse from suffolk have the race tied at 47-47. 49-48. >> it is great to be back in colorado, god's country. >> bret: paul ryan campaigned in colorado. western part of the state in pueblo and durango. the latest poll there from rasmussen has the romney ryan ticket up 50-46. tuesday romney and ryan travelled together. the obama biden ticket zeros in to dayton, ohio. two weeks and one day to the presidential election. our weekly look at how the electoral college map is shaping up. joining me is karl rove. the former bush senior advisor in new york. with me in florida, democratic strategist joe trippi. look at the latest map. you can see the info on the key. red is romney. blue is obama. pinkish is lean romne
. tonight's foreign policy debate in boca raton will feature two different philosophies. president obama won the election last time by repudiating the american power as the big stick in the world. more obama believes the foreign policy decisions made by the bush-cheney administration hurt america because they alienated many countries that could have helped us. barack obama was a fierce opponent of the iraq war and presented himself to the world as a man that that would seek consensus rather than a president that would do whatever the heck he wanted to do. that foreign policy appealed to many americans who were tired of seeing complicated situations like iraq and afghanistan drag on and on. he went out of his way to tell the world that the u.s.a. would no longer to take the lead in controversies. we would work with other nations to solve problems. we saw that in libya. now many, including governor romney, believe that president obama's foreign policy has weakened america and emboldened our enemies. romney says iran, egypt and taliban and others no longer fear us therefore americans are in far
of the debelate, i thought mitt romney did fairly well. president obama dominated the early part of the debate. >> the lines of the night? >> the bayonets. >> exactly. i think mitt romney did something important, he passed the commander in chief test. i think it leaves a very competitive race, i don't know whether it's going to tip it or not, as say, i think president obama has had two very good nights. i think by doing a very surprising thing, by coming at obama occasionally from his left to say, we're not going to kill our way out of this, he avoided the trap of being the war monger, i think he did that successfully and came across as a responsible sounding commander in chief. >> let's listen to one of the things mitt romney said tonight. >> greatest threat of all is iran four years closer to a nuclear weapon. and we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president's done, i congratulate him on taking out osama bin ladin and going after the leadership in al qaeda, we can't kill our way out of this mess. >> it is -- what he was saying is, are those the policies he would have
. it's the final face-off between president obama and governor romney but is anyone actually going to be watching? competing for the eyeballs on tv tonight, if you didn't already know it, monday night football, bears and lions, game seven of the baseball playoffs, giants and cardinals. look, we've seen the debates really do move the needle, but can a foreign policy debate compete against major sporting events? for the sports fans out there, we have some stats for you. how is this? our new cnn poll of polls shows it's a dead heat, 47/47. a let me bring in brianna keilar, live from boca raton, florida. the president admittedly took a bit of a foois in debapass in d one, really feisty in debate number two. which one are we going to see tonight? >> reporter: i think what they would say we're expecting to see is someone who is in command, and they're going to obviously sort of position him and they have throughout debate prep, he's the person who has had four years of foreign policy hands-on experience, ashleigh, as you know, you really can't trade four years of hands-on experience. tha
of this mess. >> president obama and mitt romney stare each other down one more time. >> i'm not going to wear rose colored glasses when it comes to russia or mr. putin. >> from from red glasses to red ink, did mitt romney gaughan any red states? or did president obama zing his way to a win? >> so the question is not a game of battleship. >> we go to the scorecards on a special "early start. >>> good morning. welcome to "early start," everyone. >> it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >> the debates are done. no more debates. president obama and mitt romney going toe to toe over america's role on the world stage. >> and by most accounts, it was a more forceful president obama who came out on top last night. the majority of analysts and voters agreeing mitt romney was on the defensive for much of this foreign policy face-off. a cnn poll of people who watched this third and final debate shows 48% favored obama with 40% for romney. the president now two for three in the showdowns in the polling. he also won the second debate by seven points after taking a 42-point beating in debate number one. senior congr
is weak at home. so again, who won? the polls say obama, many of our guests say romney on image. we also have news coming from apple, that stock is going down this morning. and the energy drink business reels as the fda checks monster, oil, gold and especially stocks, all of them way down today. now, is that politics or profits? oh, and italy sends scientists to jail, they can't warn about an earthquake. oh, "varney & company" is about to begin. ether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the eat barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. t's just common sense, from td ameritrade. ♪ [ male announcer ] it was designed to escape the ordinary. it feels like it can escape gravity. ♪ the 2013 c-class coupe. ♪ starting at $37,800. ♪ >> we vote two weeks from today. here is the initial reaction from last night's debate. internet
millions of americans watched the final presidential debate, the obama campaign wants to reach millions more. just in to cnn, president obama is rolling out a brand new advertising campaign over the airwaves, internet and in glossy pamphlets. why? cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin joins us from the president's first stop today, del ray beach, florida. tell us about this new effort. >> reporter: hi, carol. fresh off the debate, the president is doing a tour of the battleground states. and he's delivering a message that he is fighting for the middle class and that he has a plan for his second term, answering critics who say he's not giving enough specifics. i guess they figured if you write it down, it looks specific. they have a 19-page glossy new plan for jobs and middle class security that really details a lot of what we've heard from him before on education, manufacturing, energy, getting the u.s. out of afghanistan over time and tax reform. i've looked through it. the specifics in this really have to do with his past accomplishments on health care, on jobs and the ec
assumed he wouldn't be appearing like he was the incumbent and obama would act as the challenger. as i slept on and talk to republican strategists today, i think they think they're ahead. he was like someone ahead trying to do no harm, and i think he accomplished what he set out to do, which was establish that he had a presidential temperament and stature to be commander in chief, which the early reaction showed. fair-minded observers would say he hit that mark. he also wanted to take away the ability of the president in his closing arguments these next two weeks to cast romney as a warmonger, and i think he did that. i'm told they wanted to not scare women and turn it to the economy whenever they could, and he did all that. so i'm actually from obama's point of view very anxious a day after. it also suggests that kind of prevent/defend strategy shows how confident they were last night. >> matt, does romney seem competent as command ner chief when he continually is hugging the president's positions and saying i agree, i agree, i agree and i was no substantive critique of your foreign p
today going after the cia now as well as the obama administration. he painted a picture of libya in chaos, this dire situation. my colleague chuck todd played a sound clip from john mccain in july. this is how senator mccain described libya at the time. let me play it. >> i was there for their election, and you know how many people i met who had their sons or husbands, their fathers, their family members slaughtered by omgadhafi? to say libya is a failure, actually it's a great success. >> a great success in july. today some say ilgts a talking foint for republicans who want to attack the president and politicize what happens there as a result of the four deaths, tragic deaths of the americans on the front line of diplomacy. chip. >> a lot changes in foreign policy in a week, not to mention a couple of months. today i think libya is in chaos, and what we've seen is the president and administration changed on what it was. at first it was a video and then an act of terror. we know there's investigations, and that's what the question is. what exactly happened. what do we know, when
will be joining us at 7:30 a.m. from delaware. >>> front page politics now. new this morning, president obama in his weekly address emphasizing the progress made four years after the wall street crisis. >> businesses have added more than 5 million new jobs, the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level since i took office. home values are rising again. and our assembly lines are humming once more. >> meantime, president obama says he wants to work with congressional republicans to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff that would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts. two short months from now. >>> so, also new this morning, we have president obama picking up another endorsement, though not unexpected. this one coming from the chicago tribune. mitt romney and paul ryan made a joint appearance last night in the battleground state of ohio. >> not just picking a president for four years, we're picking what kind of country we're going to be. what kind of people we're going to be. what kind of country we're going to give to our kids. >> we want real change. we want big change. and paul ryan and i a
to answer a question. >> tonight, barack obama and mitt romney. in their final debate. the challenger, showing more confidence. >> you'll get your chance in a moment. i'm still speaking. >> the president showing more fig. >> i don't look at my pension. it's not as big as yours. >> this time, they'll clash our global threats. >> we'll make sure your military's so strong, no one would ever think of testing america. >> you like to talk tough. but what i know is al-qaeda's on the run and osama bin laden is no more. >> now, cnn's coverage of mitt romney and barack obama. battling for the job of commander in chief. >> i'm asking for your help to finish the job. >> i need you to go out there and find people that will come join our cause. >> the race is close. the election is near and america's future is up for debate. >>> this is lynn university in boca raton, florida, the site of tonight's debate. on this stage, president barack obama and governor mitt romney, they will face off for the last time before the november 6th election. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and aroun
've been saying up until a couple of weeks ago probably obama by a few points. now i have absolutely no idea. >> 40% is not a great number for a president a couple weeks before election day. >> in the last few months there's a lacking narrative, absence after clear vision where we go. >> let's get straight to it. joining me is sean spicer. sean, good to have you here. tonight's debate will be broken into six separate sections, moderated by bob schieffer. each focusing on a foreign policy hot spot. we want to drill down on some of these. the contrast between the governor and president. first we want to start with libya because there's a new report out today from the "wall street journal" that supports what the white house said about the intelligence briefing. here's what stephanie cutter from the obama campaign said about libya today on "morning joe." >> mitt romney on the day of that tragedy when he came out and shot from this and before he had any facts blamed the united states. so, blamed the president. >> so sean, a president romney would presumably have been given this same infor
journal." president obama and governor romney square off today in florida for the last debate of 2012. what would you like the moderator to ask the candidates? we would like to hear from you this morning, what are your foreign policy questions? here are the numbers to call -- host: you can also find as online. look for us on twitter, journal@c-span.org -- twitter, twitter.com/c-spanwj. we have a special hash tag set up. we are also on facebook, look for c-span. you can also reach us by e- mail, journal@c-span.org. what would you like to see the candidates asked tonight in the last debate of campaign 2012? "final debate, particularly big." host: looking at the washington -- "the washington times," obama leads as romney loses ground, but gop voters are more enthusiastic. "if the presidential election were held today, for whom would you vote"? this poll shows obama at 49.7%, romney at 47.3%. the mitt romney first debate bounce has disappeared, though the survey shows that the mitt romney backers are far more energy -- energized about him. in "the washington post" they write -- "it all co
for a couple weeks, probably obama by a few points now. i have absolutely no idea. and a strange thing has happened, mika. you actually have, instead of the romney people acting a little nervous and crazy, which they have, we have for a year, you now have democrats that are starting to move into this panic phase. you know, we could lose this thing. i think for the first time, they're getting really nervous. >> i have a lot of people -- we've seen it together -- coming up to us going, what's going to happen? what's going to happen? it is a real nail-biter at this point. >> it is a toss-up. >> i think that's fair to say. i'm not sure where these polls will end up in the long run in terms of being correct, but you know what? they are at least a touchstone for the conversation. >> this race right now could not be closer, john. >> you think about the trend line just in this poll, just to stick with the consistency, the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, people say it's the gold standard for polling. i don't disagree. in early september, obama coming out of the convention, a five-point lead with li
, the three debates, all that came before it, it comes down to what kind of a president do you want? obama's a man of the world. he respects other countries, accepts the fact we are, we americans, part of this planet. maybe the best part. but we share the world, and we better be a smart, just, and competent citizen in it. we need to take the long view of our interests and use our influence when we can but also avoid stuff that makes the future more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this old cold war stuff. what's beneath it? who knows. what we do know is he feels the need to wear that neocon suit. will he rip it off if elected? why would anyone think that? he spoke about wanting a peaceful planet. talk about learning a dance for the occasion. john heilemann and ron reagan join us. mitt has a tendenc
and winding apology tour took place on the debate stage but it was not led by president obama. governor mitt romney appeared to walk back nearly every foreign policy position he's ever taken and instead, make nice with president obama. right out of the gate moderator bob schieffer teed up a question on perhaps the biggest vulnerability the handling of the attack in benghazi. instead of continuing the criticism romney has kept up since the first 24 hours of the incident he pivoted to mali. >> we see in libya an attack, apparently by i had think we know now by terrorists of some kind against our people there, four people dead, our hearts and minds goes to them. mali has been taken over by al qae qaeda-type videos. >> the pattern would continue on nearly every major issue romney stood with the president. >> we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president has done. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden and going after the leadership in al qaeda. would you have stuck with mubarak? >> no. i believe as the president indicated and said at the time i supported his acti
president obama, mitt romney tackling foreign policy in their final debate. getting in their parting shots, as well. >> in the 1980s are now cowing to ask for their foreign policy back. >> i'm not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to russia or mr. putin. >> with exactly two weeks till election day, who has the edge now? we're holding the candidates to their statements and checking the facts, as well, and taking a look at most talked about moments. >> we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military has changed. >> i'm a son of detroit. i was born in detroit. my dad was head of a car company. i like american cars. >> complete analysis for us with ohio senator rob portman, ambassador nicolas burns and massachusetts senator john kerry. it's tuesday, october 23rd. and "starting point" begins right now. we're coming to you live from boca raton in florida. >>> good morning. welcome, everybody. we're coming to you from boca raton in florida. our "starting point" this morning, a more forceful president obama, a more measured mitt romn

" this morning, a more forceful president obama, a more measured mitt romney. last night's foreign policy debate here in florida, right here, in fact, is in the books now. and when it was over, a cnn/orc poll of debate watchers favored the president over mr. romney, 48% to 40%. let's get right to senior congressional correspondent dana bash who was watching that debate. good morning. >> good morning. look, we know this entire election year debates have really mattered. but this one was a little bit tricky because it's about foreign policy. that's not high on the priority list for voters. so each candidate really tried to make it a test of leadership. especially the president. >> reporter: mitt romney came wanting voters to see him as commander in chief. the commander in chief came determined to make sure that didn't happen. >> i know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy. but, every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong. >> reporter: time and time again the president's harsh criticism dripped with sarcasm. >> a few months ago when you were asked what's the
chargers. >> shep: first, two hours to go until the final face-off between president obama and governor mitt romney. in boca raton, florida, tonight's topic, foreign policy. they said the president would be the favorite, analysts said. that was before the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that killed the ambassador to libya and three other americans. since then the president has been slipping in the polls. look at the latest survey here in florida. a crucial swing state. last month, president obama had a nine-point advantage on foreign policy among like ri voters, now it's down to one point. that is a statistical tie. then the state of ohio, obviously another key battleground state. president has lost six points on foreign policy there but his lead is still outside the margin of error. among likely voters nationwide there is a new post poll that shows the president's lead on handling international affairs has dropped from seven points to three points, a statistical tie. tonight we're learning more about what intelligence officials told the president about the consulate attack aft
. gretchen: yes. of course, we do. just a few hours from now. president obama and mitt romney will meet face to face in florida. the focus is foreign policy. john roberts. i am scared to see what your wake-up call. >>> i went to bed later. we talk about the importance of the debates. it is important when you look at politico george tracking poll. all issues will be on the table. iran and libya and syria and china, and we have an idea of where mitt romney will go watching his running mate talking about president obama's cuts to the military in the sequestration and infamous open mike moment with the russian president. >>> when you see your president whispering to the president of russia that he will have more flexibility on missile defense, it begs the question. how much more does he want to give away . he gave technology that would have been on line next year. look out of all of the areas where mitt romney and i are very different than barak obama ask joe biden. we'll not gut our military. we needed strongest military. >> steve: on the subject of libya. if you call it an act of terror, why d
test he could. but he didn't come across as strong and assertive in my view. >> how did, obama do? >> i thought he was an a minus. >> a. >> a, you get -- you are a tough a? >> i have not given an a in this entire series of debates to anyone. i thought this was actually barack obama's best moment. and to me the commander-in-chief test and strong and decisive was actually the most important thing in the campaign. it's why mitt romney rose in the aftermath of the first debate. i thought the president came across that way. tll was a few instances i thought he came across a little aggressive. as you watch the debate. you can see he is clear, decisive, and make the decisions you need to make. on that regard i give him an a. >> he seems more confident in this area? >> he is the commander-in-chief right now. let's just leave it at that. it wasn't quite as hard for him to reach that level of an a or a minus. than it was for mitt romney. >> let's give them the bottom line here. who's the winner in your judgment? >> i'm not going to say there is a clear winner. overall obama scored more points. mi
president obama in a new poll. romney is head of the president 49% to 48%. that was only after rounding off the decimal points. since the numbers are within the margin of error, the two candidates are in a virtual tie. and the time to press the flesh is getting short for the keanes as they try to lock in every single last vote before november 6th. nbc's tracie potts has details for us from washington. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: lynn, good morning. they're doing it by crisscrossing this country, hitting the battleground states. let's talk about governor romney. is he in nevada and iowa today. he's going to be in ohio tomorrow after last night rallying with his running mate, paul ryan. he had a huge rally in colorado, in addition to that "washington post"/abc poll there's a virtual tie in the latest reuters poll. he's only one point behind, essentially a tie. he says that president obama is slipping because he's promoting the same ideas, nothing new for the next four years. meantime, the obama/biden team in dayton, ohio late last night at a rally. the president showing off yesterday a

positive things happen as part of the debate. i think obama you can look at your scorecard say he scored zingers, maybe wins on points. in terms of the big take aways. mitt romney was on the stage looking presidential, credible as an alternative to president obama. that's his goal. present himself as a credible alternative, possible choice for undecided voteders. >> so much throughout the debate you heard, mitt romney say i agree with you, mr. president. was it alternative? i don't think the average voter would see too much difference between the two? >> the romney campaign calculation this is going to come down to the economy and that's it. you need to get buy in on the other issues. this could be seen as a possible president on issues of commander-in-chief. i think his goal was to do no harm. not lobbing grenades at the obama foreign policy. where he had successes he was ready to applaud them. i am going to take what he has done and move it forward. he was the candidate of hope, and presentation of a positive vision more than president obama. >> the bottom line this debate was about fo
